Griselda’s First Firing

She’s on and heating up! 

 

The first firing is to see how long it takes her to heat up, and also to create a layer of oxidation on the elements to protect them from clay and glaze fumes. (There is some debate as to whether or not that’s necessary with low-fluorine and lead-free glazes, but I’m just gonna go ahead and take the evening to test fire anyways.)

 

 

Assuming all goes well, I’ll be bisquing those Hot Mud pieces tomorrow.
